Melanoma Nail

Melanoma Nail
Melanoma nail involvement is a fairly aggressive location, as it metastasizes relatively quickly. It appears suddenly as a pigmented line, along the length of the nail, which also colors the skin in contact with the nail. The nail stops growing and in the advanced stages, we have destruction of the nail which is pigmented like the skin around it. It may ulcerate or even bleed. The diagnosis is made clinically, but a skin biopsy is required to ascertain the depth and stage the Melanoma. The treatment is surgical and sometimes amputation is also done.


Mesopen is an alternative form of mesotherapy. It helps the penetration of active substances, creating portals of entry into the skin barrier with the creation of controlled micronulls, thanks to its specially designed head (pen with 12 tiny titanium pins), without obvious skin injury. Through this mechanism of action, the penetration capacity of the active substances increases.
